Crawley v Leeds betting – get ready for high-scoring FA Cup clash

Crawley Town have shown themselves to be one of the strongest teams in League Two this season and victories over Torquay United and AFC Wimbledon have earned John Yems’ side an opportunity to clash with Leeds United in one of the highlight FA Cup third round clashes.

Crawley have traditionally been a non-league football club although they are arguably stronger now than they have been in their history and they will relish being the underdog at massive betting odds for a Sunday afternoon clash against a Leeds team who have been enjoying some recent strong form in the Premier League.

What Are the Latest Crawley v Leeds Betting Odds?

The bookmaker odds highlight that Crawley are the big outsiders to win this game, although you can bet 7/1 that the Red Devils pull off a shock win and they have enjoyed a nine-game unbeaten run since beating League One opponents AFC Wimbledon which has catapulted the team forward to a winning run.

After draws away to Mansfield and Colchester, Crawley have won four of their past seven matches including away wins at Forest Green and Bolton. Tom Nichols has been the recent man in form and bagged a brace against the former to help his team over the line.

However, the latest betting odds for this FA Cup match reveal that Leeds are heavy favourites and are expected to get the better of opponents who are three divisions lower than their Premier League status, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side available at bookmaker odds of 1/3 and that’s the general FA Cup odds.

You can bet on the draw at 9/2 and that would see this clash at the People’s Pension Stadium go to extra-time and potentially penalties, with Crawley unfortunately not having the option to tie the match and earn a money-spinning replay at Elland Road, so it might force their hand and mean they go for the victory.

What Are the Best Crawley v Leeds Betting Markets?

Whenever Leeds are in action, it’s always worth looking at the Over/Under 2.5 Goals betting market considering that a large number of the Yorkshire side’s games end with three goals or more. It’s no surprise to find that Over 2.5 Goals is trading at 13/20 and we’re happy to bet on those FA Cup odds considering that we’re anticipating plenty of goals.

It might well be the case that Marcelo Bielsa decides to rest his entire first team for the long trip down to Sussex and it could mean that Crawley are at least successful when it comes to finding the net, with the League Two side likely to try and get on the front foot in search of scoring goals.

The Red Devils have scored nineteen goals in ten home games this season and will hope that the bumpy pitch acts as a leveller, while it’s also likely to be churned up due to the winter weather, although the absence of the home crowd will be an unfortunate absence.

There are some betting odds which allow customers to bet on Both Teams to Score at bookie odds above evens and these FA Cup betting prices should be taken into account considering we might see key defenders such as Luke Ayling, Stuart Dallas and even Kalvin Phillips given a rest after a busy schedule.

What Are the Crawley v Leeds Betting Tips?

We think a really good FA Cup bet could be to back Leeds to win and both teams to find the net, with betting odds looking really attractive and this is often a good betting market if you think the favourite is going to win but want a better value price about it happening.

You can get FA Cup betting prices of over 2/1 that Leeds win and both teams find the net during the game, with the Whites capable of overcoming their opponents although it might not be without a scare or two along the way.
